Focus in Film: Adaptation from Literature, Horror Filmmaking Styles and Auter Cinema
Author of: "The Filmmaker's Guide" series
This is Part 7, so if you haven't seen the other six parts, I would click on my name on this article and view them. You don't have to view them in order, but know that there are six other sections. I hope you're watching as much of the genre as you can. I've always maintained the idea that you need to watch as many horror films as possible in order to learn as much as you can about the craft.
There are many great horror films to watch out there and I don't think I'm anywhere near done sharing these posts with you. This is Part six so, if you haven't read the other five parts, I suggest you do so. I suggest you do so especially if you're working on a horror project. I hope you gain ideas into themes, storyline and characters (including everything in between). So, let's carry on...
(Note: this article contains information and analysis on the film "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" and in order to gain the full insight it is recommended that you watch the entire film at least once over).
This is the fifth part of the series of "The 5 Best Films to Watch" in order to learn your craft. If you haven't done so already, you may want to have a look at the other sections though there is no order in which to watch them. I hope you get a good insight into a few horror films by reading this article.
This is Part 4 of the 5 best horror films to watch to learn about the craft. I want to say that it's important that you watch as much as you can in order to learn more and take more in. It's better in the decision making process for your own film to know what you're doing, dealing with and what kind of films there have been that are similar in style to your own. We've been through 15 different films so far and now, I want to show you another five so that you can be on your way to a new project.
As you've probably read Parts 1 and 2, you would already know what this post is about. Famously shorter than my usual requests these posts are here for you to take learning into your own hands and me, to simply guide you to the correct films. If you haven't already, check out Parts 1 and 2 and find out about 10 more horror films you could watch depending on you style of film.
(Note: this article will contain analysis on the film The Sixth Sense and in order to get the best insight, it is recommended you watch the entire film at least once).
As you've probably already read Part 1, you will know about what's going to happen in Part 2. If you don't, then here's a bit of a recap: we're going to go through 5 films you should watch to study horror filmmaking and make a quick little summary on what to look out for and why that film is particularly good to watch for study purposes. In the previous section you would've noticed films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre of 1974 turn up alongside Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. So, in this second part, we're going to take a bit of a different approach and have a look at some slightly stranger horror films, hopefully you will be familiar with nearly all of them.
